About the Florida Maritime Partnership

The Florida Maritime Partnership (FMP) advocates for the state’s vibrant domestic maritime industry which represents 66,000 American jobs and total annual economic impact of $14.6 billion.

Our diverse membership includes vessel owners and operators, shipboard and shoreside workers, shipbuilders and repair yards, equipment manufacturers and vendors, dredging and marine construction contractors, numerous maritime associations and national security organizations that all recognize a strong domestic maritime industry is critical for America’s economic, national, and homeland security, and is best supported by maintaining the Jones Act as the foundation of America’s domestic maritime policy.

Modeled after the American Maritime Partnership (AMP), FMP promotes America’s maritime policy that any vessel transporting goods or passengers between two points in the United States or engaging in certain activities in U.S. waters must be U.S. owned, U.S. built, and U.S. crewed.

FMP’s member companies include: American Waterways Operators, Crowley Maritime, Overseas Shipholding Group (OSG), TOTE, Transportation Institute, American Maritime Officers, American Maritime Officers Service, Dredging Contractors of America, Eagle LNG, Great Lake Dredge & Dock, JAXPORT, Kirby Corporation, Marine Towing of Tampa, McAllister Towing, SEACOR, and Seafarers International Union.
